“Black slaughtering blacks is an old past time that needs to stop” -Neely Fuller jr
Over the Labor Day weekend, Chicago hit a deadly milestone with its 500th recorded homicide of the year. According to The Chicago Tribune, the Windy City has now logged more homicides than New York City and Los Angeles combined in 2016 and is on pace to reach a homicide level that has not been seen for over 20 years. According to a police spokesman, of the 512 homicides in 2016 tallied by the Tribune, 488 fell under the jurisdiction of the Chicago Police Department. The last time Chicago exceeded 480 murders in a year was in 2003, when there were 601.
